  • It seems to go back to the times of the lordship, when the administrative heart of Florence was connected to the Medicean Palace from this corridor discreet and known to few. Alone is worth the visit of Florence.

  • Amazing little bridge connecting the Palazzo Pitti to the Ufizzi gallery. A little expensive but well worth it. A guide is a must for this tour.  more »
  • I visited the Corridoio Vasariano during a Dan Brown Da Vinci Code tour. This was a fascinating part of the tour with a very interesting history.  more »

Where to stay in Florence

Variety is not a problem when deciding where to stay in Florence. The compact town center is packed with hotels, hostels, and small inns. The drawback of this upmarket central area is that even family-run B&Bs often cost as much as luxury hotels. For more affordable lodgings, explore the area outside the tourist-driven city center. Staying in one of the city's residential neighborhoods allows you to immerse yourself in the daily life of local Florentines. B&Bs and hotels outside the center offer private parking and spacious rooms, all within walking distance of the main tourist sites.
